No One Else To Blame‘ was produced and engineered by Tim Hamill (Girlschool, Lemmy, George Michael) and recorded at Sonic One Studios in Llanelli, South Wales.

Frontman, Wayne Doyle, said of the song, No One Else To Blame is the opening song on the new album and its an angry, guitar driven rant!

Is was written against the current backdrop of political uncertainty; particularly surrounding ‘Brexit’ and the blatant lies peddled by politicians to further their own agendas.

Whilst the UK becomes further divided between leavers and remainers, the people responsible point fingers at each other, with no one willing to take responsibility for the situation.”

The first sessions with the new members on drums and bass revealed a much more modern and progressive approach on the sound. The mixture with old-school German Power Metal on songs like ‘Nightwarriors‘ & ‘Rebellion‘ with orchestral or synth-ie sounds allured the band to walk on new roads while keeping the origin of the band alive. Like the composition recipe on ‘On High Wings We Fly‘, all members were involved in the songwriting process of this new album. All vocals were recorded under the guidance of Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) in his studio in Esslingen. A great experience to witness two professional and talented singers working on the highest level! Ralf definitely did influence the whole production of the album vocal-wise, not only because of his guest appearance on the song ‘Searching For Regret‘ but with his more than valuable input in the vocal perspective. The team of two experienced sound engineers Mario Lochert and Jan Vacik of Dreamsound Studios -well known for their professional work in recording and mastering- played a significant role in the creation of the album implementing great ideas during the production progress. After signing with ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records, Marco and Andy felt the need to express that this was a new era for STEEL ENGRAVED so the self-title felt fitting for a fresh new beginning! Let STEEL ENGRAVED take you on a majestic, melodic, modern yet old-school ride! Enjoy!

Strong and positive reactions to their music spurred Scarpeccio and Tiberi on to take the first of many bold steps. The first was to invite drummer Uli Kusch(ex-Helloween, ex-Masterplan) to join the fold, who expressed interest in joining the band as a full member rather than just a touring drummer after hearing the music. A similar scenario played out with Symphony X bassist Mike LePond and Last Union was officially born.

The icing on the cake, however, was getting Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie to sing on three tracks.

Line Up:

Italian progressive metal band, Last Union feat. Mike LePond (Symphony X) on bass, Uli Kusch (ex-Helloween, ex-Masterplan) on drums and as guest James LaBrie (Dream Theater) on vocals, have signed a multi-album deal with ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.

Last Union just finished the work on their debut album, which was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren, best known for his work with Arch Enemy, Symphony X, Devin Townsend, Angra and Opeth to name a few.

Strong and positive reactions to their music spurred Scarpeccio and Tiberi on to take the first of many bold steps.

A similar scenario played out with Symphony X bassist Mike LePond and Last Union was officially born.

The icing on the cake, however, was getting Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie to sing on three tracks.

The quiet city of Tolentino in the Marche region of Central Italy not only boasts a rich historical background, it is also the place progressive metal band Last Union calls home. Founded by vocalist Elisa Scarpeccio, guitarist Cristiano Tiberi and keyboardist Claudio Feliziani in 2007, the band – originally known as Blazing Ice – embarked on their journey in the pursuit of sharing their thoughts and feelings about life, and ultimately their art, with the world. With the assistance of professional session bassists and drummers, the trio established themselves on the Italian scene with a string of shows that helped them evolve and refine their craft. Over the course of 20 shows, Last Union presented songs that would eventually make the final cut for their debut album.
